You know that satisfaction you feel when you find a solution to a problem? Michael and I have been wanting to add more seating to our dining table so we can have more guests over for dinner, but every time I look for chairs, I can’t seem to find any that will match our existing ones. Then I thought of using our old pew bench against the back wall so we could potentially seat 2 more people. This is why I love decorating. You can almost always find ways to use things you already have, just in a new way! Right now, our pew bench is stuck outside on the porch. In our new house, the porch is not covered so it will need to come inside. I love the idea of using a bench as seating at the dining table with lots of cute pillows for added color. I can’t wait to try it out!
It is official! Michael and I are finally looking for a home to rent. It has been super stressful and we are only 4 days into the house hunt. I can’t imagine how it will be if we decide to buy a home someday. I don’t know if it is because I am an interior designer or if it is just a female thing, but I find it really hard to not let myself get attached to the homes we see. Immediately I start imagining myself in the space and where all the furniture will go and how it will be decorated. Then at the end of the tour, the owner tells us so many people have an application waiting to get approved meaning someone has a better chance of getting it than us. Then I go into a frenzy of fear that I won’t be able to find another option comparable to this one.
So, to keep me motivated, here a few of my favorite pictures as of late!
Love the bright pops of colors mixed with a lot of white!
This dreamy space is so light and airy. I am starting to really like small fur rugs.
Beautiful backyard space with fresh flowers & lights.
I like the color combination and the eclectic decor.
I like the neutral colors balanced with the pink and gold! Such a cute space!
I love design, decorating, cooking and DIY projects. My style is a mixture of cottage and shabby chic style with industrial and eclectic elements. [...]read full page
